Body contouring refers to treatments that reduce fat without cutting into the skin. They are an alternative to liposuction for patients who are unwilling or unable to undergo a surgical procedure.
While the results of body contouring treatments are less dramatic than the results of liposuction, body contouring treatments are a good fit for people who are close to their ideal weight but have those stubborn trouble spots that won’t go away despite a good diet and exercise.
Body contouring treatments use different types of technologies to destroy or shrink the extra fat cells below the surface of the skin. Energy sources such as radiofrequency, ultrasound, and infrared light create the temperatures needed to destroy the unwanted cells.
Dr. Anya uses SculpSure®, a safe and effective laser treatment that heats up your fat cells while simultaneously cooling your skin. The laser is at the perfect temperature — just hot enough to kill the fat cells while leaving your other tissues unharmed.
Dr. Anya places applicators on the areas you want to target. These applicators go back and forth between a cooling effect and heat from the laser, so you may feel these changes in temperature. You also may experience a stinging sensation or mild cramping, but Dr. Anya can adjust the temperature at any time. The SculpSure procedure usually lasts around 25 minutes, during which you can read, relax, or even take a nap.
Patients have reported seeing results in as little as six weeks, but in general, best results usually are seen in about 12 weeks. If you need additional treatment, you can schedule another SculpSure session after 6-12 weeks.
